Air intake is one of the most important components for an airbreathing propulsion system of supersonic and hypersonic vehicles. Air intake can be evaluated by air mass capture ratio and total pressure recovery ratio. In higher Mach number flight condition, larger total pressure losses occurs in the compression processes of air intake and reduces the propulsion performance. By utilizing the precompression coming from oblique shocks generated underneath vehicle forebody, a part of functions loaded in air intake can be substituted by the forebody precompression, thereby overall propulsive performance is able to be improved effectively. In the present paper, the precompression effects given by nose shape of forebody and geometrical arrangement of air intake underneath fuselage were analyzed by CFD calculation using 3-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes equations.
